Egon Zehnder in Zurich

About This Office

Switzerland is where we have our roots. Our founder, Dr. Egon Zehnder, opened his first office in 1964 in Zurich. Today, we have an international team of multilingual and cross-cultural consultants based in Geneva and Zurich. We serve leading international companies based in Switzerland, Swiss multinationals, and small to medium-sized global champions across all industrial sectors, including family businesses, not-for-profit, government, and civil society organizations.

We provide innovative and tailored advisory services, including executive search, succession decisions, and leadership assessment and development, with a focus on CEO, C-Suite, and senior leadership team members. We also advise the Chair and Board Directors on long-term succession planning and governance best practices. By leveraging the global expertise of the firm, we bring competitive advantage to our clients through great people decisions.

We are proud to continue the legacy started by our founder and look forward to building a lasting partnership with you.
